Samsung has chosen the Paris city to present its QLED TV and The Frame line-up globally. The venue choice for the event at the Carrousel du Louvre, and according to Samsung, the company focus on the Lifestyle TV concept, represented by two works of arts, the Samsung QLED TV and The Frame.
The Samsung New TVs 2017 series were aimed to satisfy three interests of the customers through the solutions known as Q Picture, Q Smart and Q Style. With regard to The Frame, an innovative TV design from Samsung has again worked with the Swiss designer Yves Behar. Let’s see the Specifications of the products with more details below:
All Samsung QLED TV are used Quantum Dot technology, but this is a different solution than the one implemented in the Samsung SUHD TV 2016 series has used new materials: specifically speaking of new metal quantum dots that can significantly improve the performance in terms of picture quality, viewing angle, color volume, brightness and bold contrast.
Samsung says that the QLED TV are able to reproduce 100% of the color volume of the DCI-P3 (certified by VDE – Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker), In terms of brightness of the QLED TV guarantee 1500-2000 cd/m2 – nit (depending on model).
One of the main changes introduced by the new Samsung TV regards the ‘viewing angle’. Create LCD TV that can be viewed from decentralized locations is always a tough task. The problem is particularly present on the VA-type panels, those used by Samsung on high-end products because of the advantages in the reproduction of black and therefore also in terms of contrast.
New Samsung QLED TV should solve precisely this limit, going to significantly expand the viewing angle. During the CES event the technical explanation was not given, however, on how the objective was achieved. The improvements reported by Samsung are tied to the pixel structure. The provision of the sub-pixels present in QSD TV is not of the traditional type RGB (with three sub-pixels, red, green and blue for each pixel). The solution used in it is some way quite similar to that Sharp employed on some models. The structure of each pixel is called Dual Pixel Structure.
The changes made by Samsung start from all new “Invisible Connection” cable that connects the TV and the external box that contains the electronics and connectors. The fiber optic cable is 1.8 mm thick and is transparent. Therefore, it is very easy to conceal from your view-site and helps to keep the installation neat and clean.
As for wall placement, Samsung has also introduced the No Gap Wall-mount which brings the TV flush against the wall, closer than ever before, with a 15-minute installation process. The QLED TV also allows you to choose various stylish Samsung TV stands. In addition to the classic Studio Stand is an ideal accompaniment for any artist-inspired living space, and with the Gravity Stand, the TV can be rotated easily and allows for optimal viewing at any angle.
The “Smart Hub” interface has been improved to provide a more intuitive and immediate. The first element is to renew the Samsung One Remote Control. The black color remote has been replaced by a silver color unit, with a metallic finish. The arrangement of keys has no special modifications. The number of buttons is always kept to a minimum and there is a built-in microphone for voice commands. Using the remote control you can now handle a greater number of devices and also has the ability to control Smart TV features.
The new models have also been established such functions, including “Sports”, “Music” and “TV Plus”. The user can see all the data within a single page, without having to scroll through various menus and without having to follow different television channels. The contents offered vary according to the partner with whom the Korean giant has partnered.
Music provides a function similar to Shazam. The TV can indeed recognize the tracks played in television programs. They also provide advice in the “Preview” of the Smart Hub to entice users to discover new songs. The partners for the Music service include Spotify, iHeartRadio, Napster, Deezer, Sirius XM, Vevo, Melon and Bugs. TV Plus, finally, offers the possibility to access streaming premium content. The service is integrated with a new EPG (electronic program guide) and the content will be channeled through agreements with partners such as Fandango and Rakuten. Through the ‘Smart View app’, available for iOS and Android, you can also scroll all streaming service contents and on linear channels. With one touch start your playback on TV, basically what Google allows you to do with Chromecast.
